Mystical Migration of the Monarch Butterfly


Buttercups and blue skies, butterflies love these
Up up and away they fly above the wildflowers
The monarch butterfly migrates for miles and miles
To cross the entire continent of north america
Escaping the northern winter every fourth generation
Returns to southern mexico a place it has never been
Flying to a place last visited by great great grandparents
Look my dear the fairies in the forest are celebrating also
You should see the tree laden of butterflies all together

Mysterious and mystical is this return to see
I would love to visit the magical forest of mexico
Great is this mystery of life and another to ponder
Reality is it real or is it a dream?
A butterfly migration and they travel as one
The beautiful monarchs another of life's
Intelligent life forms and with our creator they
Obviously have a special relationship
Now we know why they return to the same trees

The reason why monarch butterfly returns to the same trees is beautifully given by you...... 'There is no place like home'! A universal truth not usually negated, after a fantastic description of the survival instinct of a mass of butterflies that fly from a wintry weather to a warmer climate! Enjoyed reading it!
